Great tool!

Pros

The user can customize lot of reports, set his favorite views and has tons of features. If the user knows Excel, this program is very friendly and can be learned really fast.

Cons

Sometimes, is difficult to find a specific way to search something beacuse there are several path to reach the same result. If the user labetl those search like favorites, is less the effort needed to find something.

Very Bland

No matter what software we are using, Traverse had the best inventory reporting system. Seeing what was on order and the ability to set up different warehouses/locations for products was a great feature.

Pros

This worked to invoice our customers and reporting features were adequate. Inventory was great, because it showed what was on hold, sold, in stock, and on order.

Cons

This did not have a lot of reporting features for things like address books and separate locations for parent companies.

Traverse Software super users

Pros

the program is easy to use and very robust, when we compared with SAP the price was much better for what you get. Most people I speak with are very unhappy with SAP

Cons

they need a rep in our area of South Florida that can come in person to service us and give seminars on best practices
